    I've been on an Allman's kick lately, can't believe how great Elizabeth Reed is. Duane's solo has become one of my favorites of all time. Damn, wish I had seen him alive. Can't wait for the tour next year.

    I read a biography on him a few years ago called Skydog. I remember one story about how intensely he practiced when he was a kid. He would listen to riffs on records and play them over & over while learning it on guitar. He developed a technique of picking up the record needle with his foot and putting it back to the exact spot on the record mid song where the riff started...keeping his hands free for the guitar.

    The crash that killed him was on October 29, 1971, but I echo the sentiment.

    First concert I ever went to, Alan Parsons Project and The Allman Brothers at the Calderon Theatre in Hempstead, 1981.

    Duane was gone by then, but still what an amazing show, at a really cool venue.

    Oh yeah, MAJOR doobage out in the open, from the first row to the last. 1981 was a different time...that theatre was storming. And it was before "exotic" weed and the Q-tip thin jernts -- this was still in the Panama Red/Acapulco Gold "dirt weed" days when we rolled 'em as fat as your thumb and had the smoke banking down from the ceiling

    it was two weeks ago, we were traveling during the weekend, and stressing over various things, and I just forgot what day it was, not her actual birthday...good thing my daughter texted me late that morning, so I got off relatively unscathed lol
